Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Do you think that my doctor prescribed this drug without checking my medical history.
It would appear that checking my records for anything which would cause a siezure should have been a priority, particularly with this drug, or any other.
OK but with a brain scar the risk is somewhat increased,yes?
The brain scar history is in his database so he should have known, yes?
Thankyou. The reason for my questions is that i have to inform DVLA of the fit/isiezure as they probably will take my driving licence away for some time, Educated guess is 12 months.
Do you think that i have any case for complaint against my G.P. if DVLA decide to take my licence away.
Do you think that my G.P. acted irresponsibly having studied the information just provided to you?
When the tablets were prescribed i asked what possible side effects there would be.
The reply was maybe drowsiness or dry mouth.
No advice on ffits or siezures.
OK we seem to be getting nowhere fast.
Youi seem to be closing ranks if i may say so.
The ultimate question is, do i have a case for compensation for a) distress to me and my family b(loss of driving licence if it happens) and
c)out of pocket expenses. You will tell me no doubt that i am wasting my time.
Thankyou - I have your advice and will sleep on it. It seems the odds are against me. Long gone are the days of justice when G.P's are protected against anything thrown at them.
